D9521 Upper Forge 15 September 2018

There is plenty of evidence of recent tree felling at Upper Forge, on the Dean Forest Railway, seen here in this 15 September 2018 view. D9521 weaves around the reverse curves with the 12:05 Parkend to Lydney Junction service, during the line's Diesel Gala. The woods in the background contain several old mine shafts, part of the formerly extensive Forest of Dean coal mining industry.
